I just read an article on how important mornings are to the rest of your day. I totally agree with the idea of this post. I might even say the same thing for a week. I was actually just thinking about it this weekend. Last week was a rough week for me. It really started with Sunday night. I had something I was working on and I let it take more of my time than I should have. I was up later than I should have been and come morning I didn’t want to get up. I ended up getting into work later, and I didn’t want to be at work. I left before I had finished all my work, and this perpetuated through the rest of the week. In the end I was a few hours short and had to use some personal time to cover it. The main problem was that I had trouble getting up and moving in the mornings and this made my whole day less productive. This perpetuated through the whole week. In contrast, on days when I get up, exercise, and get going I am so much more productive! And as a bonus, I usually get into work earlier and can go home earlier!
In the past I made a morning plan that I was going to stick to. I did for a few weeks but then I got sick, and then we moved, and I let it slip. This week I am going to revisit that plan and make sure it is what I should be doing. I have been getting back into the exercise thing so that is a big step in the right direction. My main problem is that I feel my nights are more productive as far as side projects than my afternoons are. Maybe I need an afternoon plan too… I’ll report later in the week to see if we can come up with a good plan.
